Pirate Party by TheMarshmallowStudio

Ahoy Mateys!!

Welcome to Captain Keiran’s 4th birthday party.

Months ago I told my hubs that I didn’t want to go all out for birthday parties anymore. I told him I wanted to keep it simple, inexpensive and small. Did I stand behind my words??? Kind of haha!

With lots of DIYs and pulling in my existing home decor and props, I was able to pull this pirate off on a very small budget. I’ll explain below.

Mexican Champurrado by TheMarshmallowStudio

Growing up in Guadalajara, I remember drinking lots of Champurrado. We mostly bought it from food carts while out on the town during the holidays (Fiestas De Octubre, Dia De Los Muertos, Posadas, Navidad and Año Nuevo). It warmed us right up and went perfectly with the warm buñuelos, churros, crepas and donitas that we used to buy. I wish I had photos to share with you of these beautiful memories but I hardly have any from my childhood all together.

It’s almost impossible to find a good champurrado here in the United States so I’ve learned to make my own. Let me tell you what champurrado is…..

Fall Rice Krispie Treat Cake_TheMarshmallowStudio

Ooooh… I’m super excited to share with you another fun little DIY treat for this Fall or Thanksgiving.

You KNOW my favorite season of the year is Fall and there’s inspiration everywhere (well, mostly on Pinterest and Instagram because sadly there isn’t much of Fall going on in Las Vegas, ever). Anyway, recently I made a Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispie Treat Bundt Cake drizzled with caramel for and it left me wanting more. It was so good and easy to make that I knew I had to keep rolling with it. I remembered seeing the fabulous girls of Anders Ruff make several Rice Krispie Treat cakes in the past and thought…. I’ll make one for Fall!

Fiesta Baby ShowerTheMarshmallowStudio2

Can you believe it?! I had another little marshmallow and now our little family is complete!

Since this was our third child, I didn’t want a traditional baby shower. I didn’t want the pastel tones, the same old shower games, the girls-only type of party…

I wanted a MEXICAN FIESTA! I wanted to celebrate our love, my heritage and our family.

Invitation Fiesta TheMarshmallowStudio

We were fortunate to have my mother-in-law Rhonda, and our good friends Melissa and Erica host our shower. All I had to do was the styling, decorations and invitations.
